Social survey of the British seaman from 1200-1860 by Christopher Lloyd, the late Professor of History, Royal Naval College, Greenwich. This fascinating history includes plates and detail appendix of ships and sailors in period covered. From the Dust Jacket: "There are dozens of books on the great figures in naval history such as Drake and Nelson. By contrast very little has appeared in print about the British seaman, without whom there would have been neither merchant ships to sail, nor men-of-war to command. Apart from vague ideas about the press gang and the mutinies at Spithead and the Nore most people have little conception of what his life was like, even in such important matters as how he was recruited, paid or fed. his courage, his seamanship, his endurance have always been taken for granted."
